“Think boutique W hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013 via mobile

A hotel which should appeal to all. It oozes style but with the glam and sophistication to avoid alienating more mature guests.
This new hotel in Bogota really impresses and does more than enough to switch the most committed chain/loyalty program guest to reconsider - forget the nearby Sofitel.
Rooms are well equipped with a modern edgy feel and luxurious touches - only room negatives are the absence of a bath and a double sink and confusing lighting. Charging for coffee satchels and even an initial bottle of water is however bad policy.
Free Internet is a bonus although the signal sometimes lacks strength.
Facilities including the spectacular roof top heated pool are a thorough delight.
The opportunity to enjoy a sumptuous breakfast in the main dining room with local Colombian selections proved a treat.
Service was simply outstanding from the front door to housekeeping - not in your face but anticipatory and warmly enthusiastic.
The high level of security gives great comfort.
The location allowed walking to the best eating strip in the city.

I recently stayed here on a business trip to Bogota. The room was really nice, with a great shower and one of the comfiest beds I have ever slept in (although, sadly, I had little chance to do that). The location is useful for business, although quite a long way from Candelaria if you are a tourist. Breakfast involved a dull buffet but good a la carte options. Highly recommended.

Loved this hotel. Stayed in the most beautiful & sleek suite with a fantastic view of high trees. The linens were soft as can be and the bathroom was huge with a spectacular modern shower. The personalized service was impeccable. Room service was timely and delicious. Primly located, steps away to tons of good restaurants and great shops. The lobby is gorgeous, the roof pool & lounge are amazingly beautiful and trendy, and the restaurant is an absolute joyful experience. It was just the perfect stay. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

I stayed 2 nights at B.O.G hotel in bogota last may. It was a wonderful experience. The hotel itself has a very convenient location. I arrived with the family and baby cot was in the room with a very nice welcome card. Service was spotless, everyone was very nice and accommodating. The bedroom was beautiful and immaculately cleaned. Food was superb, loved the breakfast! If you visit bogota and stay at this hotel, do not miss the terrace, the view is fantastic. I definitely recommend this hotel!

This is a great hotel for the relative pricing. Surrounding similar quality hotels in the area are definitely more expensive. The rooms are a bit small but they hvae done a good job with the space. The restaurant is one of the most spectacular places to eat

Reminded me of the W hotel in London, no velvet rope here though: excellent location, trendy, great decor, appealing bar, rooms that have about seven light switches, lots of texture in materials and ambiance, etc etc. Rooms rather small but comfortable.

That's the location and infrastructure.

Actual hotel services: room service has a good menu but when food was brought, no napkins or silverware. AC control in room was 'blocked' ie: could not change settings and staff told me they would unblock it but they did not and I slept in a warm room. Bar is very nice but breakfast was standard and plain, nothing special and when I asked for tea instead of coffee by the time it was brought over I had finished and had to leave.

Sooooo, seems like the place needs a qualitative look at their services and stop relying so much on the trendy, boutique, expensive offering. Hope they do this and when they do it, it will be the an great hotel.

Dear guest
It was a pleasure to have you with us,
It is sad to hear that your service experience was not as expected; we sent immediately this information to the restaurant manager to make the respective corrections about the room service and breakfast, at the same time to improve it.
Regarding to the air conditioner, we inform you that we did a technical review in order to increase the generation of cold in the rooms we are sorry about this inconvenience in your stay.
Once again, thank you for your comments, it helps us to improve our service quality and we hope to have you with us in your next stay in Bogotá.

BOG hotel is a lovely design hotel situated in an excelent neighborhood of Bogota, rooms are spacious and have a lovely decoration, nevertheless, when I got to my room I had some trouble turning on the lights (and my 3 friends in other rooms had the same), we had also some problems to call to other rooms, this is not really a big problem but it can help the hotel to improve even more their service ! Breakfast is FRESH and DELICIOUS ! The bar prepares some nice cocktails on the terrace, room service is perfect...
I was a little bit shocked by Converse tenis weared by the porters, and their trousers sleeves were way too long, I guess I would prefer to see them with nice leateher shoes. One other thing I saw a lot in the hotel was that all the employees had their cell phone with them, and as soon as they didn't have much to do they were looking at their phone, what was not so nice for the hotel's image.

Besides this small comments, thanks to all the team for this nice stay !

Thank for staying with us in your recent visit to Bogotá. It was a pleasure to have you in our hotel.
We want to apologize because the problem you had with the room lights,now we are making the respective corrections, and we are checking what happened with the phones in the rooms, we have never had any problem with that before, but it is important to check.
It is very grateful to hear you had an excellent experience with the breakfast and room service.
Regarding to what you said about the staff was checking their mobiles in the services hours, it is unacceptable, and we already took new correctives about it to this will not happen again.
Thank you so much for your advice about the converse shoes wear by the front desk staff.
We hope to have you soon in BOG Hotel.
Best regards
